Materials matter: The benefits of unique polyether chemistry

3M™ Impregum™ polyether impression material captures the fine details on the first take, without the rush.

  • icon showing an arrow hitting a target and a checkmark
    High accuracy

    For complex and large cases. The material flows into the toughest spots without slumping and adapts to every margin in multiple-unit cases, and its rigidity keeps copings in place, ensuring precise placement for implants.

    Take all the (working) time you need

    Impregum polyether material maintains its superior flowability throughout a very long working time of up to 1:45min. And, it starts setting when the working time ends. This makes it outstandingly forgiving with less opportunity for errors and less stress for dentists and dental assistants.

  • icon showing a water drop
    Moisture? No problem!

    Thanks to its unique moisture tolerance, Impregum polyether material displaces blood and saliva right from the first contact with tissue, resulting in excellent detail reproduction and void-free impressions.
